No, wait. You are right. Religion. So very often that is a construct of man's imagining.
But a relationship WITH God through His Son and in the Holy Spirit enhances life, enhances thinking, develops a greater appreciation of this world or universe while adding an entire other dimension.
Religion is often faulty. Even Christianity has been misused in times past - and unfortunately even today. But if we realize what the Scriptures say, we realize that God wants to have a relationship with us. He's been offering it for a loooong time.
I'll see you your reasoning chip, sir - or rather, call it - and up the ante. I know I've mentioned science like an enemy of faith, but in proper perspective, they are not mutually exclusive.
Anyway, I do understgand that too many of us DON'T think more ... and Jesus of Nazareth NEVER intended us to be mental dwarves. He was a Teacher and instructed His disciples to be teachers.
The marvels of the physical world are indeed marvels. The secrets being unearthed, discovered, and postulated (as to what we might yet find, let's say) are only enhanced when we incorporate the One who authored them into the life equation. How about the attention Iggy is getting? Pedey seems to love playing along side him..... (edited, refocusng...)
